Camping: S'mores

You're probably thinking, any fool knows how to make s'mores ... why would someone post on a blog about it?  Just wait, you're gonna love this!  I use Ghirardelli Squares to make my s'mores.  They are the perfect size to fit on the graham and they come in all kinds of flavors!  Now - aren't you glad I posted about something as simple as s'mores?  Try your favorite flavor the next time you enjoy sitting by the fire....

Grilled Zucchini Panini

It's summertime again, and the garden is in full swing. 

I don't know if this is technically a Panini, but gosh it's just so fun to say, try it... Zucchini Panini.

Ok, so it's almost embarrassing how simple this is.  Split a torta roll (Costco) in half, drizzle with olive oil.  Drizzle both sides of the zucchini slices with olive oil, then top with salt and pepper.  Place both pieces of the torta roll cut side down on a grill.  Lightly brown/toast the bread, remove and put a slice of Havarti on each piece of bread.  Grill both sides of the zucchini, place on the bread, put the sandwich on the grill for minute or two to heat through.  

What a wonderful seasonal treat.  This would make a great pairing with salad or soup.  If I had some fresh pesto or a good pepper jelly I might have added one of those.... what would you add?
